24 Years of Grace

Crazy as it seems, time just keeps on a'ticking.  No matter how much I want to stop time for an evening or fast-forward through some days, the clock keeps on moving at the same, steady pace. No faster, no slower.  We're all given the same 24 hours in each day, 7 days in each week, 365 (or 366) days in each year to do with it as we will.

What a blessing to have had another year of life.  We celebrated my birthday last Friday with a sweet dinner out to my favorite Portland restaurant and a visit to the Oregon Zoo to see the Zoo Lights.  (Checking #5 off the Forest Grove Bucket List)  But, perhaps the greatest gift of all, was the 5 hours that evening the my husband devoted entirely to spending time with me when he needed to be studying for finals.  ;)

Thank you to all of you for the sweet birthday messages, phone calls, and gifts you sent.  You are a blessing to me!  And now, some pictures for Alicia:

Thank you, Lord, for another year of life.  The good times, the tough times, the growing, the learning.  All is grace.

Just Us

We will also remind you that this is just a BLOG…just the highlights. We don’t sit around happily smiling for pictures all day long. Our life is far from perfect: we are imperfect people serving a perfect God. We do strive to glorify God, but we fail miserably and find comfort in knowing that our debts have been paid and we have been set free.
